eBay watch: 1960s Artemide Pallade space age lamp by Studio Tetrarch
A real gem for lovers of space age design on eBay right now, this Artemide Pallade lamp by Studio Tetrarch.
Designed in 1969 and very much in that 'Space 1999' groove, it's also 'as new' and in the original box from when the seller bought it in Italy many years back. A big selling point. Other than that, this is a very cool circular floor or table lamp in white, able to target light from that large open space in the centre, the shell being made of an ABS resin apparently.
Downside? You'll need to pay extra shipping if you're not in mainland Europe, while the starting price of 400 Euros is fairly high, but not excessive in light of condition. More images (including the packaging) on the site.
